# 80%of grade is 90, 20% is 80. How do I find out what the grade is?

Update:

Do I add the 80 and 90 and divide by 2? I am given this chart A-s100-90, B is 89-80, Cis 79-70, D is 69-60 and F is less.

Let's look at it this way.

Overall you can get 100 points.

The first part is worth 80 points, the second part is worth 20 points.

On part one, you got 90 percent of the possible 80 points.

.90 x 80 = 72 points (out of the 80 possible)

On part two, you got 80 percent of the possible 20 points.

.80 x 20 = 16 points (out of the possible 20 points)

72 + 16 = 88 points out of the possible 100.

So you get a B.

Maybe a B+ if they're being generous.

=

1) 80% of grade is 90

90 divided by 80% times 100% =200

2) 20% is 80.

20 divided by 80 times 100

=25

80% + 20% = 100%

90 + 80 = 170

OR

what do you mean? 100%?

10% = 40, in other words half 80

100% = 400, 10% x 10

OR

20% x 5 = 100%

80 x 5 = 400

Source(s): my knowledge

(90 x .80) + (80 x .20) = 88

.8 times 90

plus

.2 times 80

equals percentage.

and also 0.2X=80 so X=400.The question is NOT self-consistant.
